Who Invented the Passenger Elevator?

Last updated 3 years ago

As buildings grew larger and larger at the turn of the 20th century, people needed a more efficient and painless way to get to higher levels than simply taking the stairs. New York, known for its world-class sky rises, was the natural place for the elevator to take its maiden voyage.

This video from eHow discusses the early history of passenger elevators, including the reason for its creation, and what other effects its invention has had on modern technology, architecture, and our way of life.
